Back-Up by A.M. Madden: Review

By A.M. Madden
Leila Marino’s biggest dream is to become a rock star. A lucky opportunity has her auditioning with an up & coming rock band named Devil’s Lair. The band hires Leila as their back-up singer, signing her up for months in the studio and touring on the road with the sexy bunch.

Jack is the quintessential rock star…gorgeous…sexy…a walking orgasm. Jack Lair is the lead singer of Devil’s Lair and his dreams are becoming reality as his band climbs the ladder of success. He’s living the perfect life, and enjoying every minute of it. With a steady stream of sexual conquests that satisfies his raging libido, he thinks he has all he needs in life…until Leila enters it.

Jack is not prepared for the sudden pull he feels towards Leila, and struggles daily to deny his attraction is anything more. Leila finds falling for her new boss is constant torment. Both convince themselves friendship is their only option.

An intimate moment causes their willpower to collapse, and their erotic love affair to begin. Finding love was a bonus that neither Jack nor Leila anticipated. As they begin their tour together professionally and personally, life couldn’t be any better for the couple. Until a mistake from Jack’s past threatens their new relationship, and their perfect future together.
Oh my gosh! I can not tell you how much I loved this book. I could not put it down! I had a bit of a book hangover with this one cause I did not want to move on to my next book in my TBR. I wanted more Jack and Leila!!!!!!! AND OH MY GOSH THE KISS!!! I had that kiss on my mind for days! You will have to read it to understand.

Leila is looking to advance in her singing career and strikes luck when she is approached to try out for Devils Lair. Jack Lair is blown away not just by her vocals, but her looks. What was normal hook-ups and sex for Jack are now interrupted with thoughts of Leila. But is it wise to pursue her? What would that do to the band? To her reputation?

Not only that but will Jack's past and up and coming fame work against them?

Can't Go Home by Angelisa Stone: Review


Can't Go Home
By Angelisa Stone

Everyone has secrets; secrets meant to be kept—hidden away where nobody can discover the truth. Adrian O’Donnell (aka: Dre Donley) is no exception. Dre spins tales and half-truths like it’s his job, keeping the reality of his past buried deep within each lie he fabricates. On the other hand, Kathryn Howell is the exception to the rule. She’s a straight-shooter, a tell-it-like-it-is, no filter kind of girl.

Kathryn’s honesty and straightforwardness is the ultimate turn on for a guy like Dre. He’s never met someone so sincere, so full of truth and innocence. Their chemistry is unavoidable, their connection, magnetic. When Dre sets out to make Kathryn fall for him, he doesn’t realize the grave mistake he’s making. Kathryn’s strength and convictions do not falter, even for an irresistible man like Dre. When his past resurfaces, and the lies come tumbling forth, Kathryn must decide if his deceit and betrayal can be forgiven or if the damage is irreparable. Will the truth ultimately destroy the relationship that neither one of them could deny or even attempt to resist?

I could not stop reading this book!

This book opens your eyes to what is important in life and what the author, Stone, throws at you makes you stop and think. What would you do? Would things change if you were in their shoes? I immediately fell in love with the main character Kathryn. She's a curvy, spunky women who isn't afraid to say what's on her mind at any moment. The way Stone dips into her characters inner monologues was creative and made you understand her characters more. There were times I couldn't stop from laughing out loud at Kathryn's mind struggle over herself and matters of the heart.

Dre is also loveable as he seems to have a passion for life and those in it. You can't help to want to figure him out and what seems to be bothering him. Why does he feel once Kathryn knows what he is hiding that she will run and never look back?

Any book that has great character dialogue, passion, realistic issues, and makes me laugh is a great find for me!

Into the Light & Into the Fire reviews

Book 2 in the Forbidden Love series


Jessica was tired of waking up afraid and not knowing what her dreams meant. She just wanted to sleep and have a dream that wasn't plagued with blood or horror. She got her wish and started dreaming about a pair of blue eyes that left her panting and wanting more.

Sebastian is second in command to Angel Knights clan. He, too, is haunted by dreams but he is aware of their source. His past haunts him, guarding his heart and his emotions to anyone who tries to get in. Even from Jessica.

I LOVE Jessica in this book. Yes, the name rocks, but she is a girl who knows what she wants and how to get it! The fact that the book continues to touch upon Brea and Angel's continued story is amazing!

Danielle James keeps it going and I cannot wait to read book 3 in her Forbidden Love Series


Book 3 in the Forbidden Love series
Review: WOW...I have read Danielle's first two books, but this one had me gasping a few times. Danielle James brings to life a love story I never thought possible!

One of Angel Knights band mates, Rebel, becomes obsessed with a curvy stranger. Little does he know Leigh is onto him and wants to put a stop to his prying before her secret is out. Leigh is running from her past and no one can get close to her unless they want to be put themselves in constant danger. Danger must be Rebel's middle name as he is persistent and even after learning about Leigh's past and who, or rather what, she really is his obsession only grows stronger.

The story of the Knight clan continues and in Book 3 gets even better than the last!

Twenty-five-year-old Natalie Davenport lugs substantial baggage. One boyfriend after the next has been a total disaster, leaving Natalie distrustful toward the male population in general.

Out of the Dark by Danielle James Review

REVIEW: Out of the Dark
By Danielle James
A time where Vampires and Werewolves live freely in our world. Our knowledge of them is limited but, none the less, we accept them. Except for Brea, whose first encounter when she moved to LA was not a kind one.

That's until Brea met Angel Knight.

Danielle James paints a visual masterpiece with her characters. It will feel like there is a movie playing in your head with each turn of the page. And who can resist a stubborn red head and a sexy vamp? or two?

Angel Knight never knew anything was missing from his life. Not until one fateful night when he met her. She was fiery, beautiful, and he knew he had to make her his.
Breanna Hunt lived a normal life until rock star Angel Knight walked into her life. But he made her a job offer that she just couldn't refuse, but could she keep herself safe from his charms?

Angel does everything he could to make Breanna accept him as her mate, but with a rogue vampire starts killing people associated with Angel it isn't easy. When the killer sets their sights on Brea, all bets are off.

Awesome reads for .99!!

 Grab these two reads for just .99!!!
By Jennifer Howard
Have you ever fantasized about walking away from your life? Just walking away--no looking back, no regrets, just freedom? Well, I did it. It didn't happen easily; after all, there's always got to be at least a little drama in every good backstory. But I walked away all the same. Am I better off for doing it? Why don't you be the judge of that? ~~Karma Clark

Karma Clark is a big time D.C. divorce attorney. She's also an emotionally detached, drunken burnout. After one case too many, one drink too many, and almost one step too many off an interstate overpass, the realization dawns that her life has to change. Dramatically.

In the course of a solitary weekend, Karma chooses to ditch her emotional baggage and walk away from the life she knows. Spontaneously, she relocates to St. John, USVI. Almost immediately she finds herself intertwined with innocently quirky Jae Jourdain, gorgeous yet arrogant Tyler Jenkins, and equally gorgeous loner Will Jameson. Suddenly, Karma's life is far from what it once was.

Does Karma dive into her island paradise for good? Or when disaster strikes back in D.C., does she realize that there are some things that you just can't walk away from?

By Karli Rush
Alyssa Worthington is the daughter and sole heir to the most prestigious coven in the witch world. Her childhood has been spent in the mundane human world learning to blend in and hide who she truly is, and it is here, during her last year that she meets a striking ex-high school quarterback from a small town in Montana who will turn her world upside down.

Alyssa holds the element of fire, unlike her best friends Lisa and Megan, who are both air elementals. It is the elemental powers that reside inside which require positive thoughts and positive actions in order to maintain this magickal connection. What would happen to a witch that let this get out of control? How can evil become the driving force behind revenge and death?

Dark secrets, dark magick and a desperate desire for revenge will bring Alyssa to the brink of destruction. She is being chased, but this pursuit is a silent one and her chaser has but one goal, Alyssa’s complete and total destruction. Will she overcome this dark threat and begin to live out her destiny? Will she survive and if so, will she lose herself as part of the price for being alive? Or, will her destiny rest on being crescent bound?

With all these dark forces creeping around silently in Alyssa’s life, her coven pushes for answers, some of the answers about an eighth and missing coven, in the witch world, lie with her new interest. Marcus may be the key to unlocking the mystery of the silent darkness threatening the seven remaining covens.

The Book of Paul...Oh My F**king Word!


I have never read a book like this, nor do I think I will ever read another like it. The characters are broken, flawed, yet beautifully perfect. You will follow them as they each share their own perception of the events that are unraveling, but always missing one piece of the puzzle, the piece that will have you reading on until you reach the end. But is it really the end?

It takes an open minded reader to appreciate the wittiness, historical viewpoints, and graphic horror. But if you are willing to open up your mind this book will leave you speechless. At times I found myself pondering their reasoning's, screaming at their actions, and jotting down multiple quotes. Paul is a quotable guy.

Many have said it is sadistic, horrifying, and just plan wrong. I ask you this? What in horror isn't? What religion does not have violence, sex, and multiple interpretations?

"The world is a very scary place for all of the sheep. But for the wolves...it's paradise"

This is a book! A must read at that and I challenge you open your mind, pour some Bushmills, and dive into The Book of Paul.

COMING SOON! Erica Stevens Ravening series book 3!

Erica Stevens Ravening series book 3 is coming!!

I can not tell you how excited I am for this book, not only cause I will be a character in it, but Erica has a way of bringing her character to life and their world easy to visualize. You will feel Bethany's emotions and with Cade having some perspective time in book three you will be able to feel him too. Don't think dirty ;)

Ravening Book 3: Teaser 2

  A low snarl escaped Cade as he took a step to the side to try and cover me more. It was useless though, they could all see us and no matter how strong he was he was no match for the numbers we were facing. He would fight to the death in order to protect me but that was something I was determined not to let happen.

   "Hello Cade."

   Everyone in our group's head shot toward us as the woman greeted him with a small nod. I straightened my shoulders and thrust my chin out as her coffee colored eyes slid to me. Her deep brown hair had been pulled into a loose knot that sat against the base of her slender neck. Her slender nose and high cheekbones reminded me of a fashion model, yet there was something about the angular shape of her face that somehow detracted from the aura of beauty she seemed to radiate. She was extremely intriguing looking though and I found my eyes riveted upon her as questions and doubts bounced rapidly through my mind.             

   Cade's jaw clenched, a muscle in his cheek jumped as he surveyed the crowd gathered before us. I didn't know when he'd done it but I spotted a knife in his hand as the light from a lantern gleamed off of it. "Hello Jessica," he responded blandly as he shifted so that his shoulder was against my chest.

   Aiden glanced at me but I kept my face impassive as my stomach twisted into knots. Who was this girl, and how did he know her? She had to be one of his kind, but there were definitely a few humans surrounding her if the fairer color of their hair and eyes was any indication. Unless they were altering their looks now, which would be the easiest thing out of all the deceptions they had unleashed upon us.
The Ravening series book one is FREE! Get it and read them both in time for the release of book 3!

R.K. Ryals unedited excerpt of Fist of the Furor; Book 3 of the Scribes of Medeisia Series!

My first two reviews are up! Why did I post my reviews on R.K. Ryals first?
Because the third book Fist of the Furor is coming soon Dec 2013/January 2014!
Here is an Unedited Excerpt for her new book Fist of the Furor!!
Unedited Excerpt:

My slippers were silent on the marble as I descended the flight of steps, the sound of raised voices circling me. Madden followed, his face set in disapproving lines. Maeve met us at the bottom of the stairs, Daegan at her back.

“Complicated stuff, court matters,” the bowman muttered. “I think I much prefer fighting to ...words.”

“There is less chance of misunderstanding in swords and bows,” Lochlen agreed, his reptilian eyes flashing as he slunk from the hall’s shadows.

Madden tensed. There was something disconcerting about the way Lochlen moved, his steps fluid and lithe. Each of us wore a robe over our clothes. Maeve and Daegan chose to wear the color of the mage, the blue cloak falling over leather trousers and skirts. I donned the color of the scribe, the simple brown cape resting over a thin green dress with no petticoats. I couldn’t afford the weight, the risk too much fabric would pose in an unexpected fight. It was enough I wore the skirt.

Pulling my hood up, I glanced at Lochlen, at his equally brown cloak. The only difference in our garments was the thread. Lochlen’s mantle was lined in gold. It suited him.

“You fear power if you fear words,” I remarked.

Daegan threw me a look, his fingers pulling his blue hood down over his face. Maeve mimicked him. I lifted the corner of my robe, allowing Oran to duck within its shadows before shuffling down the Hall of Light, keeping to the walls. Guards lined the polished marble entrance, their faces stern and unmoving. Only their gazes betrayed them, their eyes tracing our group as we moved past, our feet silent. Any noise we made was overridden by angry exclamations.

“You dare question me?” King Freemont roared.

Before him in the immense hall knelt a scarlet clad woman ...


Book 1, Mark of the Mage, is currently free on Amazon!

A Remarkable Read! Tempest by R.K. Ryals

A Remarkable Read!
Tempest by R.K. Ryals
The story continues and so does my love for this series!

I don't know where to begin. Honestly, I was blown away. I rarely ever feel so much when reading but I felt as though I was traveling the Ardus. Experiencing their hope, fear and heart aches. My heart broke into pieces on a couple of occasions that I actually had to stop to compose myself before I continued.

The mad Medeisia King is wanting a war and to gain power. The rebels realize that the King of Sadeemia must be warned and is their only hope top regain their way of life.

Stone, Kye and the rebels leave to speak to the King of Sadeemia and put an end to their own King's cruel intentions. That mean they have to face the impossible; crossing the Ardus. An inhospitable desert which separates their two nations. Question is, is the price they have to pay worth it when they get to the other side? Will the king even speak to them?

Lives will be lost and their purpose tested as their quest for hope and freedom continues.

Mark of the Mage by R.K Ryals is AMAZING!!
This book had me hooked from the very beginning!

I had not read a book quite like this one and wasn't sure if it was up my alley, but after I was drawn into the very first turn of events. I COULD NOT STOP! Not for the dishes, laundry, and I think I even rejected a number of calls from my mom. Sorry mom.

The talent of R. K. Ryals takes you into another time, into another world where trees can talk, a wolf companion with a snarky attitude, and an intriguing shape-shifting dragon! The people of Medeisia have been oppressed and some executed just for being who they are or how they are marked. Drastona not only has the same traits and mark as some of the people in Medeisia, but also fears that she too will suffer such a fate. Her fears send her running her into a group of refugees who also fear the King and what has become of their home.

Kye one of the refugees, with secrets of his own, becomes a guide to Drastona. Guiding her to realize more about her and what has been going on in Medeisia.
Get comfy and get ready for a story that will have you crying, shocked, and wanting more!
